Okay here's the problem: A picture hangs on a wall suspended by two strings. The tension in string 1 is 1.7 N and is at an angle of 65 degrees above horizontal (from left). String 2 is at an angle of 32 degrees above horizontal (from right). The strings connect to the same point that holds the picture. a.) Is the tension in string 2 greather than, less than, or equal to 1.7 N? Explain. b.) Verifiy your answer to part a by calculating the tension in string 2. If I remember correctly, the tensions times the cosine of the angles are equal so: T1cos(65) = T2cos(32). But I do not understand why. Isn't that just equating the x components of the tension and not the tensions themselves? Maybe I have been misled... Thanks in advance.
